6 Months Braces

6 Months Braces

Gallegos Family Dentistry is New Mexico’s home for adult braces. And while we provide braces for those younger folks as well, we want our adult patients to know that adults can have braces, too!


What are Six Month Braces? 

It is a specific orthodontic technique used to correct cosmetic issues in adults and older teens. Using a few key strategies, including nickel titanium archwires, we can correct most cosmetic issues in as little as 6 months.


Who is a candidate for Six Month Braces? 

Most of our cases are on adults who had braces as a teenager but the teeth got crooked again, or adults who never had braces because they thought it was too expensive or took too long. Six Month Braces solves both of those issues by being faster and typically less expensive than traditional braces.


 How does it work? 

Similar to traditional braces, Six Month Braces uses brackets and wires to gently move the teeth in a very predictable and efficient manner. However, the brackets we use are clear and blend right in with the teeth, and the wires are white so they hardly noticeable.


What’s the 6 month braces cost?

Out of pocket cost for Six Month Braces varies widely depending on the complexity of the case and depending on your dental insurance. Most people are generally in the range of $3500-$4500. We do offer many convenient payment plans and can get payments lower than your monthly cell phone bill!

By keeping the 6 months braces price affordable and broken down, our patients can have access to a beautiful and healthy smile!
